Morning links: T.O. in Seattle? Don't bet on it

Steve Wyche of the NFL Network reports that the Seattle Seahawks showed preliminary interest in veteran wide receiver Terrell Owens, making exploratory phone calls to check in on the 36-year-old according to a source.

If Seattle indeed made those calls, it’s likely that happened during their pursuit of Brandon Marshall before the draft. As it stands now, the Seahawks have 15 receivers on the roster, selected Golden Tate in the second round of this year’s draft and have big receivers in Mike Williams, Reggie Williams and Ruvell Martin. So it is unlikely that Seattle is in need of Owens’ services, and this is probably a move to generate interest in the mercurial receiver.

Clare Farnsworth of quotes general manager John Schneider saying that new quarterback J.P. Losman was unbelievable in his workout for the team on Tuesday, leading to the Seahawks signing the veteran quarterback.
